When Gnu started, the very act of snowboarding was considered freakish. Weird open minded experimentation has always been job one. Mysterious materials, bizarre geometries, contours and board shapes, far out art and colors, odd terrain and freakish riders have allowed us to create fantastic progressive snowboards taking snowboarding to wild and magical places. The wonders of science are their playground: impossibly light and strong metals that burn, polymers that travel through space, trees that grow to 20 feet in one year or cover hundreds of acres as a single organism. We test in all on Mt. Weird and have ecologically applied them to the Gnu snowboards.
